What constitutes a good radio show for Drew Mariani?

The day a trucker on I-94 phoned to tell him to worry about his own marriage during a segment on same sex marriage, and a Protestant pastor on another line praised his viewpoints on the subject, is an example.

"I love that," he said. "I love the diversity of the programs. It's an open forum where we can dialogue in a spirit of love and charity, and come to a deeper understanding of the truth. After talking to the trucker, he ended up thanking me for giving him a better understanding."

Mariani hosts The Drew Mariani Show, a daily afternoon drive time Relevant Radio program broadcast across the country. Locally, it airs from 3 to 6 p.m. on 1050 AM WJOK.

Mariani describes the format of the show as "looking at real life issues through a spiritual lens." It features guests and a call-in format.   Full story ...
